Like the name implies, The Necromancy Mod is a perfect mod about necromancy. This mod focuses on reanimating slain foes, that’s why this mod is also called the art of reanimation. Additionally, through it, you will utilize your minions to rule the world! (of minecraftia). Hope that this great mod will give depth to your game.
First things first. you need to get some blood. In order to harvest blood you need some Bone Needles. these are crafted like so:
Craft yourself some Glass Bottles and hit a mob with a needle. This will consume the needle and the bottle, but you will get a Jar of Blood in return. If you’re on a server you can also hit the other players to get their blood.
Next up, the Necronomicon.
With the necronomicon you can create yourself a Summoning Altar! Place 2 cobblestone and a plank in a row (in the world, not the crafting bench) and right click the plank. You still can’t summon a minion yet though. You need to get some souls first. How? With a Scythe, a Blood Scythe.
Use this weapon to kill some mobs and make sure you have some glass bottles left in your inventory. If you use the Scythe to deliver the final blow, a bottle will be filled with a soul.
One more thing. You need a Sewing Machine to create bodyparts. It is crafted like so
Now this is where it gets complicated. There are a lot of recipes so i won’t post them all, but i’ll show you the basic recipes, or templates if you will
You need to start with getting some skin.
with the skin, you can create heads, torso’s, legs and arms. You’ll also need some organs, these can be obtained by killing mobs.
You’ll notice that these recipes won’t work and that they have holes in them. Like I said before, these are the template recipes. Let’s say you want to create a spider head, you take the head template recipe and put some string next to the brain. If you want a zombie head you put some rotten flesh next to the brain.
Back to the Summoning Altar. You should have body parts now and you should see a couple of slots in the Altar. The left one is for blood, the right one is for souls. Place your body parts in the center to create a minion. If you are happy with the way your minion looks and you have supplied the altar with blood and a soul, you shift right-click the wooden part and the minion will spawn. If you aren’t creative, the altar will use up your blood, soul and body parts. If you have The Harken Scythe mod installed, you can also use their souls instead of mine.
So what can you do with your minions? As of now, not much. They will follow and protect you. You can also saddle them by using a saddle on them. Keep in mind that this only works if you minion has a spider torso. Shift right click to mount the minion and right click again do dismount. If you want, you can craft yourself a Brain on a Stick to control them.
One last thing. If you’re the exploring kind, you might prefer to go to the nether to get your blood. Nether Chalice’s spawn randomly in the lava lakes.
They hold a ton of blood, but it can be dangerous to reach them. The blood can be picked up with buckets. You can transform Blood buckets to and from Jars of Blood like so
